's the paranoia from the u.n. >> explain it. >> the notion that the u.n. is going to come in and tell us what to do. the fact of the matter is this treaty raises the world to the standard of the u.s. doesn't require the u.s. to change its standards at all and doesn't in any way give the u.n. power to do anything in this country. but i think it's -- all you have to do is say u.n. and people on the right get very exorcised. rick santorum helped lead the opposition to this treaty. i think he's out of step with the american people, out of step, by the way, on this tax cuts for the rich stuff. you know, bobby jindal said today, and i thought it was remarkable, we're in danger of becoming the party that defends the rich, anti-medicare, anti-social security, and there's no future in that kind of republican party nor is there one in a party that's anti-handicapped. >> let me go to john on this because you and i, john, i think we all know people in our business, in the journalism world, and in consulting who have handicaps. they are in wheelchairs, but they raise a ruckus effectively if there's some f
is up and which way is down, these men have been bipartisan leaders together on this treaty. the u.n. convention on the rights of persons with disabilities has united the seemingly un-unitable. the vote was scheduled today. ratifying a treaty requires 66 yea votes. former senator bob dole was there at the senate for the occasion. in his wheelchair. the decorated wounded combat veteran, the former republican presidential nominee on the floor of the senate. he was there with his wife. so senators had to walk past him in his wheelchair on the way in to vote. and the republicans in the senate voted no. the treaty got 61 votes, but you need a super majority to ratify a treaty and only eight republicans voted for the treaty. it requires nothing of us. 38 republicans voted no. so it failed. forget republican president, john mccain, war hero, bob dole in his wheelchair in the senate, forget our wounded veterans in their wheelchairs, forget them all. republicans are going with rick santorum and the black helicopter theory instead. now this year in 2012. they did that today. amazing. joining u
treaty to ban discrimination against the disabled. they say it would allow u.n. officials to come into this country and force home-schooled children into government-run, that is public schools. senator john kerry joins us to cut through the nonsense. >>> also tonight, the simpson's mr. burns gives us a rich man's look at the fiscal cliff. >> think of the economy as a car and the rich man is the driver. if you don't give the driver, he'll drive you over a cliff. >> that's an aside show and this is "hardball," the place for politics. >>> never too early for pollsters to start head to 2016. guess who's looking very strong? hillary clinton. a new abc news/washington post poll say they would back hillary clinton. it's helpful no one has run a campaign against clinton for the past four years and also helping her numbers is 68% approve of the job she's done as secretary of state for this country. >>> welcome back to "hardball." we know now that mitt romney blames his loss on obama's gifts. i should put the quote marks around that. the much maligned 47% came out in force. last night paul
like when they accuse u.n. ambassador susan rice and the president of covering up the libya tragedy. even though the cia provided her talking points. so here we go again, a new boogieman, a defunked group stole the election. it's kind of funny but to nearly half believe it, it's scary, just like that boogieman that doesn't exist. thank for watching. i'm al sharpton. "hardball" starts right now. >>> scaring the republicans. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start tonight with this, with hope. i think we're getting somewhere with this fiscal cliff problem. number one, smart conservatives now say the republicans would face hell if they let this country go over the fiscal cliff. just to protect the top 2%.ç better to take the hit now, they argued, than in january with the world economy in turmoil and second recession coming. number two, john boehner, the speaker is claiming he's met obama's demand for higher taxes for the rich. that's good. he agreed in principle the rich must pay more. number three, there's talk for the republican l
the disabled. they say it would allow u.n. officials to come into this country and force home-schooled children into government-run, that is public schools. senator john kerry joins us to cut through the nonsense. >>> also tonight, the simpson's mr. burns gives us a rich man's look at the fiscal cliff. >> think of the economy as a car and the rich man is the driver. if you don't give the driver, he'll drive you over a cliff. >> that's an aside show and this is "hardball," the place for politics. you can stay in and share something... ♪ ♪ ...or you can get out there with your friends and actually share something. ♪ the lexus december to remember sales event is on, offering some of our best values of the year. this is the pursuit of perfection. offering some of our best values of the year. when you take a closer look... ...at the best schools in the world... ...you see they all have something very interesting in common. they have teachers... ...with a deeper knowledge of their subjects. as a result, their students achieve at a higher level. let's develop more stars in education. let's inves
was actually getting calls from constituents with disabled children wanting to know if the u.n. would remove their children from their homes. it is manufacturing fear in the lives of americans. sometimes it's just a bald-faced lie about the facts. here's the democratic and republican opening bids on the fiscal cliff. but the revenue side of the republican proposal just doesn't match up with reality. you can't get $800 billion in revenue from lowering rates and closing loopholes and deductions. can we get on that page? it doesn't come close to adding up, unless you get rid of just about every deduction for the middle class that's out there. is that what this election was about? president obama has been clear about it all along. >> unfortunately, the speaker's proposal right now is still out of balance. you know, he talks, for example, about $800 billion worth of revenues, but he says he's going to do that by lowering rates. and when you look at the math, it doesn't work. >> you see, if we lower these rates, then the job creators will go out there end and all this money to hire a bunch of peop
believe in the u.n. and i was in puerto rico. we have that in common but we also have in common looking at this last election and one of the things that you were very paying nate about is when mr. mitt romney said that the president won because he gave gifts to latinos and african-americans and seniors. tell us why that upset you so. >> it upset me because it's a prejudice statement, plain and simple. what is he implying? that every single african-american, latino-american is poor, is on public welfare? i don't think so. and to categorize us and to make generalized statement like that, it just needs to stop. and i guess he did not learn anything from his loss. we are growing in numbers. we are recognizing our power and we are utilizing our power and we will continue to do so. i don't -- you know, i just don't what is the problem with gifts? i was a person who received gifts. first of all, they didn't feel like gifts to me. going to school on a lunch card was very hard. standing in line to receive a block of cheese was very hard. wearing hand-me-downs to school was very hard. yes, my aun
may be running out for bashar al-asaad. the u.n. says there may be nowhere for him to run at this point. is there a chance he may quietly seek asylum? >> reporter: a few months ago president assad said in a television interview he would never leave syria nor seek asylum. that position is apparently changing. he's said to be seeking asylum in cuba or ecuador. it is not clear whether these are just rumors or actual reports. we are hearing this from second hands coming out of damascus. but there is some evidence that the assad regime does feel like its back is up against the wall. so these taken with reports of their chemical weapons being prepared. it feels like the assad regime is look at its options getting out. >> it feels like there is a rumbling and things may be shifting. how much shifting are the rebels taking in terms of taking back those areas they lost. >> we are hearing opposition groups in syria that the rebels are making progress. rebels have recently taken over several key military bases in syria away from the syrian military. and when the syrian military tries
the first action then that -- will we see emergency action at the u.n. perhaps this weekend? when is all this coming to a head? >> i think the russians keep moving in the direction they are, i do think they're there, sending all the signals that they are done with assad and so the market signals are there. i think you'll begin to see movement in the u.n. and, more importantly what's not being discussed the real contest about syria also involved iran. iran is the big proxy supporter of syria and, you know, we have this leak in "the new york times" or coverage in "the new york times" about a potential eventual bilateral discussion between the united states and iran. i think that solving syria, moving syria into a different place changes the game for all the other great powers with iran. >> i would love -- i'm out of time. i would love to get going with morsi. david sanger with egypt and morsi, is this going to be a situation, does he back off of this a little bit because there's such an uprising? >> yeah, you'd think so but so far his public signals have been doubling down on passing the c
block a u.n. treaty on rights for the disabled because they are concerned about home schooling. you don't want to miss this tape. >>> plus my interview with ohio senator sherrod brown on what looks like a massive win for progressives and elizabeth warren. >>> then senator debbi stabenow of michigan on the latest in the fight to end republican obstruction. and the people creating petitions on the white house website are getting more and more creative. we'll tell you what the new petition to build a death star. >>> good to have you with us. thanks for watching. democrats are determined to extend the middle class tax cuts before the end of the year. that's the bottom line. party leaders and members are all on the same page. president obama rejected the latest proposal from john boehner. the president and the democrats are focused on revenue and they are determined to make sure that the top tax rates go up. >> unfortunately, the speaker's proposal right now is still out of balance. he talks, for example, about $800 billion worth of revenues, but he says he's going to do that by lowering rat
by the plo which recently after four years of not negotiating with the us rail ris went to the u.n. and asked for upgraded status. do the israelis have anyone to negotiability a peace process with at this point, and if they didn't negotiate, and let's suppose that abbas came tomorrow to negotiate these process after four years of refusing to do so without concessions in advance, could he sign a pape or that would be at all -- a paper that would be at all meaningful? would he be able to bring hamas into it which is dedicate today the extermination of israel? is there any way to believe that israel could have a separate peace or have peace for the -- before the rest of the world settles this mess with islamism? >> well, it's possible, but it's very hard at this point to imagine. it would not come easily for all the questions, for all the reasons that your questions embody. i mean, in the first place, um, right now israel faces a palestinian people that are divided between two governments. so making peace with one wouldn't give them the security or the confidence to take the risks that they will
's part of what was tragic about the vote that happened yesterday in the senate with the u.n. treaty on people with disabilities. america has this opportunity to lead, we hear the republicans talking about why aren't we leading more and more with our moral leadership, by saying human rights are important and you have someone like secretary clinton out there talking about it, talking about rights of women and girls everywhere she goes in a way we've never seen or heard before, so i think there's a lot of compassion but i feel like our friends in the senate need to kind of get withes the program because i think the country needs to send a stronger message internationally. >> well -- >> i have to say that i think americans realize you don't need a passport to work on human rights. and one of the big programs we're working on now is farm worksers rights. here in new york state, farm workers don't have the right to a day off per week, don't have the right to workers comp, don't have the right to form a union. you can be fired for trying to form a union here in new york and one farm worker
or not senators mccain and others are upset at the president. if you look at her u.n. record and, more importantly, her state department record, senator albright was furious with her and put her on probation. she has a terrible record among professional diplomats in the same -- i don't know if she was a terrible desk officer from ethiopia, genocide, which is the president says is one of his greatest regrets or mistakes, those were all on his watch. if she did such a terrible job there, how can she be a secretary? >> the president has been able to rehash that old garbage that mary is talking about. they have not done so now. they are talking about trumped-up charges and old regrets and on issues that, you know, would come out in a nomination hearing if she is nominated but i would just say, as an ambassador to the u.n., she's done an excellent job. she's served our country well and president obama ought to be able to make the choice based on who he wants as secretary of state. >> president clinton has told me on several occasions, mary and hilary, his greatest regret as far as being a president on
who was wounded while serving our country in world war ii. watching the u.n. disability treaty pass in the senate where he spent 27 years of his life was to be the cap on his life as a great republican and a fine american. that's how they treat one of their own. plus a -- [ applause ] >> wow. >> stephanie: hello doris in kentucky. >> caller: hello steph. we live -- ashley judd is exploring the possibility of running for the seat of mitch mcconnell. >> stephanie: i think that's awesome. >> we couldn't be anymore excited. we're bursting at the seams. louisville is supporting it. i think what she said this morning is to see if -- to see the possibility. but we're -- trying to stay connected on the web and let her know we'll support her. we will start some progress of trying to get this man off of the senate. >> stephanie: yep absolutely. we will be all over that to eject the turtle from his terrarium in kentucky. >> send him back to the galapagos. >> stephanie: for smokin' hot actress ashley judd. we wer
and meeting with russian foreign minister sergei lav rov and the u.n. mediator to this crisis and we may be on the edge of seeing moscow finally move, finally willing to give up its support for assad. if that happens, you might be able to broker what most people had given up on, the idea that assad could go into exile. >> bill: because russia has been syria's main ally. >> absolutely. backing it all the way. there again this is our man. we're not going to look like obama did. we're not going to go back down. obama backed down on mubarak. the russians see that as a sign of weakness. we're sticking with our guy. the rebels are advancing. they're getting increasingly armed first from external sources but also from the bases they captured so they've got heavy equipment now. we talked about this last week. tanks, anti-aircraft that -- weapons that have downed two syrian aircraft in the last two weeks. so you see the assad forces falling back. they're in a fight for damascus at this point. so a lot of the heavy shelling tha
and meetings of hillary clinton with the u.n. and her russian counterpart, there's no hope here for a diplomatic solution. instead, what people talk about is the suffering of the people. the people are showing tremendous resilience. this house was bombed by mistake. the people who lived here lived next to a rebel commander. now they're homeless. there is also tremendous economic difficulties here. the syrian currency is worth about half of what it was worth when the war began. a loaf of bread costs 20 time what is it did just a few months ago. despite all of this, the rebels are making advances. they say they will -- they hope to soon control the city of aleppo, the country's commercial capital. after that, damascus. richard engel, on the outskirts of aleppo. >> you both just saw richard's report. aaron, let me start with you. how real, at this point, is the fear that bashar al assad's regime could use those chemical weapons against the rebels? >> i think the fear is real. the question is, what's the point? desperate men trapped in difficult circumstances might actually deploy t

[ laughter ] >> stephanie: now rude, speaking of our body of government now what with this fiscal cliff thing? do you sense how this is going to play out at all? >> no. >> stephanie: okay good, thanks for calling. >> every time you think something is going to happen, somebody else comes out and says no no, no, we're not going to raise are the medicare age even though there were signs that was going to happen. klein wrote about that recently. now democrats came out this weekend. dick durbin and others saying we're not going to raise the medicare age. >> stephanie: i think that's a bad idea. the
